WikiLeaks has activated contingency plans after their co-founder’s internet link was intentionally cut off by a state party, WikiLeaks has said in a tweet.

Julian Assange's internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party. We have activated the appropriate contingency plans.
The internet is one of the few, if not only, available ways for Julian Assange, who has been locked up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, to be in touch with the world.


The news comes as WikiLeaks is releasing damaging documents, namely hacked emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta, which could ruin Clinton’s chances of becoming the next US president.


The 9th release, the latest, occurred on Sunday, bringing the total number of leaked files to over 12,000.

Among the hundreds of emails released are discussions about appealing to black voters, Hillary’s email apologies, and Chelsea Clinton being described by one of her father’s longtime aides as a ‘backstabber.’



The batch also comes amid revelations of Clinton’s cozy relationship with the mainstream media, and how they work closely to control the media landscape and set up stories that show her in a favorable light.

Earlier this month, it emerged that Hillary Clinton reportedly wanted to “drone” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange when she was the US secretary of state.

According to True Pundit, Clinton and the State Department were under pressure to silence the whistleblower in the months before WikiLeaks dumped some 250,000 diplomatic cables from 1966 to 2010, dubbed CableGate.

Unidentified State Department sources claimed Clinton asked “can’t we just drone this guy?”.
